A pretty dry day for the riders………….300K May 16, 2015
The 300K is in the books. We had twelve riders registered, two riders did not start, and two riders abandoned due to a serious mechanical issue. There was rain all around on Saturday, but for the most part, our riders were able to avoid it. Debi was in Austin, Texas buying me some socks and a water bottle from Mellow Johnnies bike shop. You know, the one that Lance is associated with, and has a shrine devoted to him in the basement. Debi got some really nice pictures for me, and still managed to put together a batch of date bars for the 300K before she left. Volunteering, with a little arm twisting, Ben Slay and Dawn Mettler manned the turnaround picnic in Logan, and by all reports, and what I personally witnessed, they did a great job. Thanks Ben and Dawn. Ben came up with the idea of donating all the extra food and such to the Logan Fire Department. They were very appreciative, I just wish I would have thought of it first. Further proof, that along with David Buzzee, David Miller, Ted Meisky and Ric Noland, that I am fortunate to surround myself with great people. Matt Taylor finished first at 6:30 pm, and Eve Hush, David Rudy, and John Sanchirico finished to beer and pizza at roughly 10:00 pm., well ahead of the 2:00 am cutoff.
